Kid Rock, Jamey Johnson coming to UCF Arena in Orlando




Oh, okay, Jamey Johnson. We see how it is.

You were all set to perform at this year's Florida Strawberry Festival in March. But then we found out you had to back out, and Plant City got Billy Ray Cyrus instead. No huge deal. These things happen.

But now we find out why you won't be in Plant City: You're going on a Jim Beam-sponsored tour with Kid Rock instead.

Really, Jamey? You mean to tell us that Kid Rock and Jim Beam throw a better party than the pig racers, Twinkie-fryers and Strawberry Queens in rural East Hillsborough County? We find that hard to believe.  

And to add insult to injury, the two of you are actually coming to Florida in March! Why couldn't you stop by the Strawberry Festival, too? I mean, you're coming to Orlando's UCF Arena on March 5, to be followed by appearances in Hollywood on March 8 and Jacksonville on March 9.

We know, that leaves room for a possible date in Tampa. And yes, we know Kid Rock is billing this as the first leg of his "Born Free" tour, so we might see the two of you back in these parts later in the year.

For now, we'll have to make do with the March 5 date in Orlando. Tickets are onsale for $27.50-$87.50. Click here to purchase.
